May’s Scenic Drive Through San Diego

It’s a tiny bit embarrassing to admit, but even though I have lived in San Diego my entire life, I have explored very little of my own city. To be fair, I relied on my parents to transport me anywhere for most of that time. 😛  So when I discovered a scenic drive all conveniently…

I still remember placing medieval knights on their castle and firing the canon on…

June’s Visit to the Garden

We missed our May date, due to crazy busy-ness that month, but in June, we headed out of our home base of San Diego to the far-off world of Los Angeles. Indeed, Huntington Library is one of those magical places, where once you enter, it sweeps you into a land of history and culture. It…
